  • RndTbl: Green & Smart Cities - UX Design for Sustainable Behaviour
    For this special edition of the UXHel RoundTable we will be having an open space discussion co-organised with ROND - Production House. The topic for the discussion will be: “Green & Smart Cities - UX Design for Sustainable Behaviour”. We have all experienced the effects of climate change first hand this summer and it's becoming more and more evident we all need to do our part to influence this. The question is: How design can nudge people to make more sustainable choices? And how UX Design enables positive behavioural change to build a truly green & smart city that ultimately results in mitigating climate change risk? For this edition there are only a limited amount of seats available. ROND will fill the remaining seats with experts ranging from Architects, Design Thinkers, Researchers, City Planners to Behavioural Scientists together to have an inclusive debate and discussion toward the topic. The facilitator for the evening will be Juska J. Teittinen - an extraordinary, analytical service design visionary. Juska has worked at global design agencies like Fjord and taught strategy and experience design at the Aalto University. Major influences include user-centred design, Toyota Production System and rhetorical theory. We will use the open space format, where all participants create and manage their own agenda of parallel working sessions around a central theme of strategic importance. Agenda: 17:00 Door open & Networking 17:30 Opening presentation by facilitator Juska J. Teittinen 18:00 Open Space discussion 19:00 Break & Voting session 19:15 Breakout sessions 20:00 Breakout session pitches (5min/team) 20:15 Final conclusion 20:30 Closing & Networking It’s not just a meetup, it’s about experience. ROND provides microlearning experiences, using creative methods to engage and captivate audiences for the best user experience, they create actionable knowledge by summarising and analysing the outcome of the events and sharing these insights afterwards via ROND Magazine.

An un-conference where UX professionals and enthusiasts can teach each other in an open, fun environment. Anyone who has something to say / demo / teach can pitch to the crowd. If the crowd approves, the pitcher gets a session and a time slot to host a session in. At UXCAMP, there are no spectators. If you’re not presenting, you’re participating and learning actively. You participate by joining the hands-on workshops and discussions, entertaining the crowd, writing blog posts, sharing experiences on social media or demoing something cool. What to Expect 200+ people sharing knowledge about design, design systems, UX, product design, UI design, strategy, and just about anything else. Who Can Come? Designers. Developers. Tinkerers. Entrepreneurs. And Just About Anyone Else! How Much? The event is primarily supported by our generous sponsors. The tickets are, however, sold with a price tag of €25-30 to add a level of commitment to the registration, and to limit the amount of no-shows. We would be sad to see empty seats while turning people away at the ticket stand. Tickets are unfortunately non-refundable, but transferrable. So, if you get a ticket and cannot attend the camp, please either transfer your ticket (you can change the details through the edit link) or cancel your registration to give people on the waiting list a chance, either way please let us know at [masked].

    Registration Required at: https://adobexuxcamp.eventbrite.com In the lead up to UXCamp Nordic, we're proud to partner with the Adobe XDI team to bring you a deep dive into Adobe XD. The aim of the workshop is to be a hands on run through of every feature in the program, and get you ready to make production ready layouts. WHERE: Elisa Appelsiini Oy, Kaarlenkatu[masked] Helsinki (Entrance on Franzeninkatu side) WHEN: 31.5, 16:00 to 21:00 HOW MUCH: 25€ It is suitable for both beginners and experienced users of XD, and requires attendees to bring their own macOS or Windows 10 laptop and an iOS or Android device. Detailed instructions will be sent to attendees well in time before the workshop. The event will be open for 40 attendees. Sign up fast at https://adobexuxcamp.eventbrite.com Do you have your tickets for UXCamp Nordic already? If you don't, get your tickets now at uxcampnordic.eventbrite.com -------------------------------- Take the time and take XD for a spin, and discuss with the extended XD team. Learn how to rapidly design, prototype, and share interactive experiences at the speed of thought. In this hands-on lab you’ll immerse into a new tool, and learn powerful tips and tricks to remove friction from your digital design process. Claire-Lise Bengué from Adobe will provide unique insights into the roadmap and the user research driven development process at Adobe and explain how the XD team manages to deliver quality releases across five platforms on a monthly release cadence. Ask any question, and discuss best practices in product design and development with them. WHAT TO EXPECT After an introductory discussion including proper expectation management, we’re going to dive into bringing a simple user flow to live. Attendees will create an interactive prototype from scratch, that is shared for feedback and delivered to production. Attendees are to touch every feature of the software and will leave the workshop ready for production work using XD. Along the workshop, attendees will discuss common (and maybe even completely new) additional ideas and feature requests with the extended XD team and the group, and gain a good understanding on how XD can help solving day to day challenges now and in the future. TARGET AUDIENCE This workshop is for designers working on products that are living on a screen, and for people of all job roles that want to prototype and communicate ideas.
